13 people from Greystone Baptist Church worked in Lumberton on January 10-12 rebuilding houses. Two of the houses had not heat while two other houses were heated. We tore out sub-flooring and replaced sub-flooring, hung insulation, laid lauan sheeting over the sub-flooring, replaced baseboards, set 2 bathroom vanities and attached kitchen cabinets.
Check out our recap video from our World Communion Sunday worship with Rise Against Hunger.
Our Mission Kids had a wonderful day Saturday as they visited the Family Life Center and community garden in Conetoe. They met LaCount and Anna Anderson, our CBF field personnel (missionaries) who work in that area. They learned about bees, visited a BIG garden, and actually helped in the greenhouse! We also had lunch and a worship service. […]

The children’s Mission Garden had a bountiful spring harvest. There was lots of lettuce (including Romaine – which could probably have been sold for a premium) and kaboodles of kale delivered to North Raleigh Ministries. They appreciate fresh veggies – especially greens. The days are longer and the sun is hotter, so now we’ve moved […]
While many students celebrate the end of the school year with a trip to the beach or simply being lazy, a team of youth and adults from Greystone Baptist Church spent their first days of summer in Red Springs, NC participating in flood relief work following the damage from Hurricane Matthew in October 2016. The […]

For centuries Christians have either given up or taken on something for Lent. These small daily sacrifices help believers turn their hearts to God […]
